Rodriguez is talking himself out of New York, talking himself out of adulation, talking himself into a corner from which he will never escape, even if he hits 800 home runs.
I almost felt sorry for him last October after the Yankees were eliminated and manager Joe Torre humiliated him by batting him eighth in the final game against the Tigers.
No more. Never again.
A-Rod should be the anti-Bonds, the darling of baseball fans everywhere. But it''s not going to happen as long as he remains his soap-opera self, creating drama when there is none.
Once and for all, he needs to shut up and play.
What do you think?
What's up. o.o
